Usage Trends in a Digital Library: A Case Study of Iupac.org

by Slovney, Sean M

Abstract (Summary)
The International Union of Practical and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) is a digital library that is host to numerous collections and journals on chemistry. In response to increasing demand over the last few years, they want to improve the Iupac.org website. To do so, they must first determine how the site is being used, so that they may make the appropriate changes that would best improve the digital library. Therefore, the goal of this study is to analyze web usage logs and survey users so that future designs of iupac.org will adequately address the needs of its target audience.
